The signs outside so many of the shops would imply locally made gifts. I wanted in my own small way to support the work of local artisans. On going inside it all changed and everything from rugs to birdhouses came from somewhere else. I have nothing against a global marketplace but there are places that specialize in that kind of shopping and when I want an international shopping experience that is where I will go.
Along with the quilt I mentioned yesterday we got a couple prints from local artists that I need to get frames for. These are things I will see every day to remind me of the time and place.
